There’s alot of chit chat in this forum.
With few exceptions of the ‘gameplay matters most’ variety, it’s fair to say reception from the community has been negative if not downright hostile. Much of the criticism has been leveled at the cartoonish graphics, terrible textures, very poor unit combat mechanics, ridiculous and unrealistic weapon / buildings sizes, etc. The list goes on.
My question is as follows : is there any evidence out there that developers are taking this negative feedback into account and will take active steps to address it?
So far the only evidence I have seen was that Podcast with Adam Isgreen. The impression I got is that the man was defiant, exhausted and frustrated. He basically gave us the tired line around gameplay and readability, begrudgingly conceding there may be some marginal graphical finetuning. His interview however certainly did not give me the impression Relic would be turning the ship around on some very questionable design choices of this game.
I think my question will be important to those who are looking to manage their expectations around the game release. I waited 15 years for the latest instalment in the franchise. If this is indeed the game they intend to release… I’d rather ignore the whole thing and move on to something else. I don’t do online games, sorry.
